The seven-member Peanuts gang featured Joshua Colley (Elf, The Musical) as Charlie Brown, Gregory Diaz (School of Rock) as Schroeder, Aidan Gemme (Finding Neverland) as Snoopy, Milly Shapiro (Matilda) as Sally, Mavis Simpson-Ernst (Evita) as Lucy and Jeremy T. Villas (Kinky Boots) as Linus.

Presented in association with Van Dean of Broadway Records and Sister Productions, the production was inspired by an earlier Feinstein's/54 Below concert that featured young actors from Matilda, Evita, Finding Neverland and Newsies.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown features a book, music and lyrics by Clark Gesner and additional material by Andrew Lippa. It was last seen on Broadway in 1999 starring Roger Bart and Kristin Chenoweth, who both won Tony Awards for their roles.
